Summary: I really liked the original, and recently returned to the series and decided to play through the expansion; missions tend to be larger, and more resource intensive then in the original StarCraft; and very often follow a Bunker, Build, Breakout Pattern. The game definitely favors the player who masters the tech tree and knows when and how to use all there units.
Summary: All of the reviews I've read seem to come from longtime players of this game rather then new players who actually bought the Battlechest. One of the first things you need to know about this addition that there is NO MANUAL. I was pretty surprised to discover this. But wait, you say, there are two official strategy guides. Yes there are. But they won't teach you how to play the game.
Starcraft should be a classic game. It is just that good.

Summary: This should be consider one of the classics games in the game world. It has been the top 10 games for a couple of years and it is still widely played today. This package contains the original and expansion pack with strategy guides which is really good deal. This game is a strategy game which has a very awesome story line for its campaign. And if you want to get out of the RPG/MMORPG craze Starcraft is a the best strategy game to go back on.
Summary: Starcraft is also a must buy for a strategy game lover. Although Sc is not as great graphic wise as Age of Empired II the game certainly makes up for it's graphics in other ways. Such as it's three seperate races that are nothing alike. Each race have different abilities and different units. Then you have ladder when u play ladder you get a rating and you can check your placement within that area of the world.
Summary: Blizzard have always been a respectable computer game company, with good titles such as Diablo 1 and 2, Warcraft, and others, but Starcraft somehow manages to put all other computer games in the background as surely the greatest and most enjoyable Strategy game of all time. It is very hard to explain what makes Starcraft such a good game, it just is. I think the easiest feature to notice is the incredibly balance in the game.
